Sunny and warm in Minneapolis forecast, followed by thunderstorm chances
We’re looking at a day of middle to upper 80s, with some humidity working its way back into the Twin Cities area. Overnight tonight, and then again tomorrow, we’ll see some stray chances for showers or thunderstorms.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Let’s talk about the shower chances that show up tonight. They’ll likely hold off until a wave of energy works its way in by around 3-5 a.m. tomorrow morning.
Here’s the future radar view as shower chances start to slide in:
Shower chances quickly slide farther east by the end of the morning commute – but we could still see a few pop-up showers through the rest of the morning and into the early afternoon hours. Here’s the future radar view as the line of showers slides east:
You can see some of the popup showers in those little dots across southern Minnesota (near New Ulm and beyond). Looking ahead, after this shower chance we cool off for a couple days – lasting until Friday morning. After that we’ll see temperatures jump right back up into the middle to upper 80s, with a chance for some 90s by Sunday to Monday.
